The Norbergfestival association proudly presents:
Norbergfestival offers a unique mixture of electronic music at the spectacular location around Mimerlaven, an abandoned mining area in the small town of Norberg in Sweden.
-We are proud to once again present Norbergfestival. And we know that the festival is truly appreciated since the majority of the festivalgoers comes back year after year. Some even plan their summer vacation according to the festival dates, says Carl Nyrinder, president of the Norbergfestival association
Three days a year, industrial concrete buildings transform into an international playground where festival visitors experience a multicolored spectrum of electronic music, sound art, and clubs. Previous years Norbergfestival have had the pleasure of offering performances by artists such as DJ Food, Adam X, Dopplereffekt, Kid 606, Skream, Lustmord, Skudge, Håkan Lidbo, Hundarna från Söder just to name a few
-I have one of the best jobs in the business, adds Henrik Jonsson, head of bookings at Norbergfestival. - When you got the opportunity to combine some of the biggest artists in the world within their genre and combine them with rookies who´ve barely even released an mp3 but still produces high quality music, and the combination turns out great, then you know you´re doing a great festival that really matters for electronic music in Sweden.
Together with light and sound installations, workshops in the fields of audio and video and a friendly and creative atmosphere matched by none, this truly makes Norbergfestival one-of-a-kind.
- Since we are a nonprofit festival, the DIY-spirit is enormous and that affects the visitors as well. And I guess thats one of the reasons that our workshops are so appreciated, says Sol Andersson, head of events at Norbergfestival
In 12 years Norbergfestival has grown from being a utopian project for a handful of people into one of the most important annual events in the Scandinavian electronic music scene.
- You could try to describe the festival but you really need to experience it on location to really understand what Norbergfestival is all about, says swedish synthlegend Daniel Araya.
The first release of the Norbergfestival 2012 lineup will be available the 20th of april on norbergfestival.com
